I was born in 1960, Breda, The Netherlands. I am now living and working in Amsterdam.
Painting has become an all consuming passion to me, especially when working with oil paints.
People and Animals are a source of inspiration from wich a fantasy, when taking shape on the canvas, starts leading its own life. And I, as an artist, am left to follow in its path. People, animals and objects function, alone or together to tell a story with room for different viewing points.
Take the name I give a painting just as a suggestion. I leave it up to the viewer to give his or her own interpretation with the symbolism and magical reality I depict. Thus leaving the possibility open to use your own imagination and maybe even enjoy a moment of recognition.
